The Falls in the Fall
My Mom and Dad were in Niagara this week and out of sheer jealousy I was inspired to write about my favorite time of year in my favorite place. Er…favourite.
The crowds are down and so is the temperature. The sky seems bluer and the trees make everything that much prettier. Walking through Victoria Park just doesn’t get much better for me. Head to areas around the Falls and you’re met by migrating birds at Dufferin islands. The drive out to Niagara-on-the-Lake is stunning with grape-heavy vines and fabulous color. Er… colour.
I won’t be able to make it this October, though I usually can. I did send someone from Texas to Niagara this weekend. You’re welcome American side. He didn’t have his Passport… Sorry Canadian side. But I have to admit…. One of my favorite American spots is Three Sisters Islands. You’ve gotta love that last rocky island!
Yes – I have taken all of the pictures shown above on various trips. Except the horseshoe – that is a screenshot from a couple of days ago. Those colours were popping even on a cloudy day! Anyway – here’s to falling for the Falls in the Fall! Where is your favorite – or favourite – leaf-peeping spot?
